Dear Bugman:
This insect was found on my front brick walkway close to the yard and to flower bed. It is about 1.5 inches in length and is very well camouflaged. I live in Delray Beach, Florida which is southeast Florida.

Dear Sally,
The Grizzled Mantis or Florida Bark Mantid is quite difficult to spot when it rests on tree bark.
